I am a Senior Consultant with Woods Bagot, a global architecture firm with over 700 staff across 14 studios. I’m an architectural practitioner, journalist and teacher.
I have over 6 years experience delivering highly successful client-centric strategies that are both human-based and business-driven. I focus on generating value-based solutions for discerning and risk-averse clients. In short, I’m a problem solver.
The solutions I deliver to clientele transcend beyond architecture into urban planning, policy and real estate investment. Whatever the challenge, I’m committed to bringing maximum value to client conversations. I have researched tenant trends for international commercial developers, design trends for Chinese domestic hotel operators and global capital flows for business development opportunities.
I’ve recently relocated to Melbourne, Australia after a 5 year stint in New York City, USA. I have taught at Columbia University's GSAPP and currently teach at Melbourne University's MSD. I contribute to Archinect, Architectural Record, Urban Land, AIArchitect and Conditions Magazine on a wide variety of issues that range from strategic analyses of current M&A activity in the architecture industry to the ways in which A/E/P firms can leverage ROI evaluations to increase market share and competitiveness. I have a BSc (Arch) and a BArch (Honors Class I), both from the University of Sydney.
